Welcome to the Website of Paul Dinas, Book Editor


"Writing a novel is like pottery. Your initial draft of your story is like a lump of clay. Editing is like shaping that piece of clay into something interesting and beautiful."

Monika Pardon, author

Writing a book is an adventure filled with exciting challenges, exhilarating rewards – and loads of hard work. Anyone who has begun this creative journey knows it helps to have an experienced guide along to avoid the pitfalls along the way.

As an editor, that’s what I do.

After three decades as a book editor in the fast-paced world of New York trade publishing, I offer my insights into both the creative process of writing a successful book and the business of publication. I am dedicated to helping you make your book the best it can be.

I offer a full range of customized editorial services at affordable rates.

Let’s travel the road to creative success together.

Best wishes,
Paul Dinas
Independent Editor
